She was an excellent organist who loved to play at home for her family and at church for the glory of our Lord. She enjoyed bowling and was very good at this sport in earlier years. She loved her Lord, family, friends and all animals. Joanie could always find hope and humor in all situations and was a compassionate and caring person.
God speed… until we meet again.
